A Class With Drucker

A Class With Drucker

A Class With Drucker Book CoverI just finished William Cohen’s A Class With Drucker. Quick summary: Call me Peter.

Cohen was in the first cohort of doctoral students that management guru Peter Drucker taught at Claremont Graduate School. The book is a set of recollections about the classes and Drucker’s teaching style (bouncing somewhat between sweeping statements, long lectures, and the Socratic Method).

A Class With Drucker summarizes Drucker’s major teachings while giving insight into a professor who was very approachable to his students. He liked to be called by his first name, but he demanded respect. The book provides some good insight into the complexities of the man by one of his most successful students.

If you like to get an historical perspective on one of the great management thinkers of our time, coupled with clear Druckerian management lessons at the end of each chapter, this is your book. You could read a lot of Drucker books, or you could read this one. A Class With Drucker will save you a lot of time: It boils down all the lessons into one volume.
